a TaLe To ReMeMBeR...!!!

Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock! (onomatopoiea wordivanjaya.net)

I have never thought that the time will be flying as fast as this...!!! It's the end of my time in ASASI TESL, well at least close to it. We still have final examination to be taken care of. After that, we'll be free...!!!

Basically, these are the schedule for our soon-to-be hellish hectic examination week. After we are done with this, we'll go back to our respective hometown. Mine will be none other than The Land Below The Wind, Sabah.ivanjaya.net

I'll miss everything during my whole year of ASASI. Going late to classes, hang out at the library, have lunch at Cafe Gagak, Cafe 'Belakang', Cafe Mahal Ausmat, and INTEC Shoppe and INTEC Gym. The memories I have there are priceless. I just hope that I will be given the opportunity come back here again to continue pursuing my degree in Bachelor in Education (Honors) TESL, or people would just call it B.Ed TESL for short. I wouldn't want to go elsewhere because my heart has been too attached to this university. Though the fact that UiTM is the most cheapest university too.ivanjaya.net

Now, I have completed all most of my assignments. But I still have a few more to be completed by the deadlines. They are:

  1. IES Report - Group work with Megat and Bombay due 1st March
  2. IES Hafazan - Individual task due 1st March
  3. Argumentative Essay - Individual task due 1st March
  4. IL Written Assignment - Pair Work with Adam due 3rd March
  5. Final Drama report - Group Work with all drama group due 4th March
  6. BPiE take home test due 8th March
These 6 assignments are still need to be done before those deadlines. Let's hope I can relax a bit after that.

By the way, we have just done with our final drama, 'A Tale to Remember' on 23rd and 24th February. It was held for 2 nights. All the drama have their own specialty. I like the Mahsuri Conspiracy storyline and Adam's character as Deramang. I like Ulik Mayang's dances and Che'ah's acting. I also like the fighting scene between Lee and James in and Todak and Hafiz's acting in Princess Hang Li Po. I like Ameer, Syazana and Neb's voice projection in Huminodun, Abe's acting in Batu Belah Batu Bertangkup and the fact that Sa'diyah slap people around with her shawl. Yes, I like them all because they have their own specialty.ivanjaya.net

Obviously, there would be a little bias in me. Of course I would like my play the most.ivanjaya.net Not because I think that we're the best, but because my group member had performed their very best and I am really proud of them. Imagine, they have transformed themselves from zero to hero.ivanjaya.net All of us, even myself were in null in acting knowledge and we strive together as a team and we managed to give what a memorable performance.ivanjaya.net Yes, being in a team together with 'Ainin, Turis, Izzaty, Megat, Bombay, Yan, Ezza, Yana, Tira, Syue, Farah, Nadia and Bella was a bumpy road. I wouldn't say I was 100% and all the time happy because even they themselves know that we had one bumpy road together. But I see it as a norm of life when you're in a group. I love all of you...!!!ivanjaya.net

Bella, thanks for being the narrator. Though you didn't manage to memorize the script but we manage to deliver the story even when you were holding the 'Book of Shadows'.ivanjaya.net

Nadia, even though you are always sick I would like to say thank you so much for being the most bitchy 'gedik' maid I've ever known. Sorry because you have stepped on the broken glass. Blame Turis and 'Ainin for that. Thanks for saying one of my trademarks, 'Tetz~!' during Tun Teja fainted.ivanjaya.net

Farah, thanks for being the best Dang Ratna and props master for preparing the props and all. Thanks for following all of my humble and not-so-good direction. Thanks for presenting what I wanted Dang Ratna to be. Thanks for not looking left and right every time you fell from Hang Tuah. Thanks for using one of my trademarks on stage. ivanjaya.net

Syue, thanks for being the costume manager and make-up artist for all of us. Thanks for choreographing 'Senyum Minang Manis' together with 'Ainin. I'm sorry I didn't use your make-up during the show because you were nowhere to be found before the show. Thanks for being the guard who captured Hang Tuah.ivanjaya.net

Tira, thanks for being the Pawang Tigha I've always wanted. Even it was hard for you to scream laugh-out-loud but you managed to do it during the real show. Even it was hard for you to bent down all this while, but you managed during the show...!!! I love it so much, and I believe you managed to give an impact to the audience as well.ivanjaya.net

Yana, thanks for writing such a beautiful script. Thanks for allowing me to put my crazy ideas in it. Thanks for allowing me add Mak Inang and Hang Tuah dance battle and removing scene 12 due to time constrain. Thanks for allowing me to ad-lib my lines. Thanks for creating the soliloquy as I wanted it to be.ivanjaya.net

Ezza, thanks for writing blog entries about all this. Thanks for putting emotion in your acting. Not much I can do about you because you can deliver your expression pretty well. Thanks for willing to be pulled by Bombay during the intro scene. Thanks for dancing 'Senyum Minang Manis' even though it was hard for you in the first place but you managed.ivanjaya.net

Yan, thanks for being the most jantan masculine Syahbandar in Malaysia. You were the only girl who didn't have any problems with voice projection. Thanks for not freaking out when you forgot your line and said 'there' instead. You managed to cover it up and made people laugh.ivanjaya.net

Bombay, thanks for being the best Bendahara Inderapura. Though you and Megat were nowhere to be found 5 minutes before the show. Thanks for wanting to dance 'Senyum Minang Manis' and made it a memorable moment. Thanks for finding all the background pictures though we couldn't use it. Thanks for following my lead when I ad-lib my lines during our scene together.ivanjaya.net

Megat, thanks for being able to show the bad in Hang Tuah, the antagonist. Thanks for breakdancing during the dance battle. Thanks for being able to accept all my directions to make you as bad as possible. Now, you know how to make more and more expression day by day. Thanks for not getting injured though you stepped on the broken glasses twice.ivanjaya.net

Izzaty, thanks for not backing out on being Mak Inang. If it were someone else, it wouldn't give an impact to the audience as it has. Even though you refuse to shuffle in the first place, but you enjoyed it in the end. Thanks for giving me the sound for Hang Tuah and Dang Ratna scene. Thanks for making my throne and twist-able prop.ivanjaya.net

Turis, thanks for being a good stage manager. Thanks for being the stranger, the servant and the demon. Thanks for breaking the Livita bottle. Thanks for the cues and hard work of making sure our drama was as smooth during the show.ivanjaya.net

Last but not least, 'Ainin. Thanks for crying during the soliloquy. It was really unexpected. Thanks for telling me what was wrong and right when I can't direct during my scene. Thanks for creating such a beautiful choreography together with Syue. Thanks for taking care of the group during my absence. Thanks for being able to get your emotion out.ivanjaya.net

I bid my highest gratitude to all of you. If I were to get others for our drama, I'm sure the result wouldn't be the same and the impact wouldn't be there. There is no one to replace all of you and all the characters are meant for each and everyone of you. I apologize for the hardship that I've given to all of you but I think it's worth the effort as we got really good feedback from the audience especially Adlan Ramly, the Whoa! Willow!! director.ivanjaya.net

Being the leader and director of this group somehow made me a better and more mature person. Thanks guys...!!!ivanjaya.net

Writer wanna be said...

Thanx a lot iz! None of this would have happened if we didn't have u as our director. yeah, we argued and bickered a lot but like what u said, that made us more mature. We learn from each other- that's the most important thing. i miss being told 'Thre's practice drama after this..'. literallly, i miss all of those. the mahsuri play, it didn't live up to my expectation. the story was too short tha i cant feel it. in my opinion, our storyline is much better than theirs. they just played it safe.-my opinion-. anyway,yeah, great joob to u too iz! everyone laughed when they heard ur tagline. haha.. i had a great time with all of u! sayang anda semua!

everybody has their own strengths and weaknesses...just hope that we'll be having more and more experience like this again in the future...
